    DescriptionAlso on The Independent app edition, a series looking at UK food poverty, with those living far away from larger supermarkets identified as being most vulnerable. Dr Kingsley Purdam, expert in public services and nutrition, explains: “Local shops provide an essential service but they are often more expensive, with less fresh produce. This only adds to the food costs faced by those who rely on them.”
